First DT Piece For The Stamp Attic

It's now time for my first DT piece for The Stamp Attic. The stamp set for my first DT is to use an Inkadinkado set Garden Flower which you can find here
My inspiration for this piece came from some papers (So Sophie) I purchased from The Stamp Attic.  I just love these colours together.  I have used DI ink mustard seed and Adirondack currant for stamping.
This set has very delicate flowers and would work beautifully in any collage composition.
For my first piece I thought I would have a go at a Tri-Shutter card. I have shown this image flat so that you can see the detail.  These are very simple to make.


Cut a 12 x 12 sheet in half.
Score along the long side at 2, 4, 8, and 10 inches.
Measure from the top and bottom edges 1.5" and cut from the first score mark to the last on both the top and bottom edges.
Simply fold to create your Tri-Shutter Card.

When the card is standing you can see the folds quite clearly.  To complete I have added ribbon, butterfly (Martha Stewart punch) and ribbon.  All these are available from The Stamp Attic.  Have a great day everyone, I'm off to watch some Wimbledon.  Tracy x x x
